Finished a page!!!!! Happy Dance!!!!

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I updated my blog!!!  Time flies!  I am on Spring break this week and I have been busy on homestead!   I am a pack rat so I decided this spring break I would tackle some of the hidden mess.  I cleaned out all the bathroom drawers and cabinets yesterday.  I am amazed about how many free samples I had cluttering things up.  Today, I emptied all my cabinets in my kitchen and reorganized them.  My get rid of pile is getting bigger and bigger!!!

I have been doing some stitching.  I finished page 10 of Faery Tales!  If you look at the second picture, that is what I finished up tonight.  You can see the start of Hansel and Gretel's house.  

Close up of page 10

I thought I could be a one project girl but I can't.  I am bored with Faery Tales and actually find things to do rather than stitch on it.  So I have decided to go back to a rotation.  I am going to start with my smallest project for one week, then back to Faery Tales,  then my next smallest project, back to Faery Tales.  So every other week I will work on a different project.  This is my smallest project, Victorian Winter by Mystic Stitch.  I am actually on page 1 of 9.  It reminds me of a house out of a Jane Austen novel.  

The last time I worked on this was in 2013 so it has been a while.   Here is my starting progress.  I hope to finish this page before the end of the month.

I love Fairy Tales, and every time that I see your progress I go and look at the chart again. I bought the two Shakespeare ones, and now Faery Tales really wants some attention.
I haven't been a one at a time girl for many years now, I get bored and have to work on other things.

Lovely progress, well done!

I find sping cleaning quite fun, although it can be hard work, it feels really good to declutter!
